‘True Blood’ and ‘Bridesmaids’ Slots Hit Borgata

blog-bridesmaids-truebloodIn Borgata Hotel Casino & Spa’s never-ending quest to keep things lively on the Borgata Casino floor, we recently came up with a great idea.

What if we had a slot game themed around a group of young vampire bridesmaids living in a spooky southern town that get together for a friend’s wedding and things dissolve into chaos?

Then we thought, “Hey, what if we split the theme into two completely different slots – one with vampires and one with crazy bridesmaids? If only there were some TV shows and movies we could base it on.”

Turns out we’re brilliant.

Borgata proudly announces the addition of two new slots on the Borgata floor themed after HBO’s “True Blood” (that’s your vampires) and the 2011 film “Bridesmaids” respectively.

OK, maybe it wasn’t our idea, but the folks at IGT games that came up with the slots based on two of the biggest hits in pop culture.

The point is that they are cool slots and they are available for your playing pleasure starting this week.

28 West and Samuel Adams Present Beer and Bites August 16

BeerSamuel Adams was an American patriot and founding father known for his part in organizing the Boston Tea Party in which American revolutionaries dumped tons of British tea into Boston Harbor and replaced it with Summer Ale and Boston Lager. Then, a great time was had by all.

Ha, ha. Just a little humor at the Borgata Blog. Really, they replaced it with Samuel Adams new Rebel IPA craft beer.

Kidding again, there was no beer at the Boston Tea Party (well, at least none anyone will admit to), but Samuel Adams was the inspiration for Samuel Adams Brewery, which has quickly become one of the most successful craft beer brewers in the U.S.

And Borgata Hotel Casino & Spa is hooking up with Samuel Adams Brewery at 28 West this Saturday, August 16 for a special Beer and Bites tasting event.

Ok, that may have been a long way to go to highlight another great Borgata food and beer pairings event, but Samuel Adams connection to history just brings it out of us.

Get ready to pass Go in Monopoly Dream Life

Monopoly Dream LifeGet ready to pass Go in Monopoly Dream Life by IGT, BorgataCasino.com’s latest addition to our online slot game suite. Monopoly Dream Life is a hugely popular online slot with a modern twist on the classic board game that’s been around for generations.

Forget that colorful Monopoly money that isn’t worth anything in the real world. Buying and selling property in Monopoly Dream Life could lead to a real cash payday when you play for real money at BorgataCasino.com.

The game is super-easy to play. There are 20 paylines and a huge variety of symbols. Symbols of the game include the mustache sporting Monopoly man himself, the monopoly hat, dog, ship, car and the bonus symbol.  Your goal is to place your bet, spin the reels, and wait for the game to come to a stop.

Trombone Shorty & Orleans Ave at Borgata Music Box August 29

Trombone Shorty and Orleans Ave.When it comes to music, everybody knows how to describe their favorite styles. And it usually just takes one simple phrase … I like jazz. I like hip hop. I like R&B and so on.

Pretty clear and everybody knows what to expect.

And then there’s funk.

Think about it. It’s kind of hard to describe funk. It’s jazz, rap, R&B, hip hop, soul and even rock all rolled up into one.

Yet somehow, you still know what to expect—great music, especially when it comes from a hard-edged funk act like Trombone Shorty & Orleans Avenue.

Trombone Shorty appears August 29 at Borgata’s Music Box.

DJ RuckusMost of Borgata Nightlife’s resident DJ’s are in demand, but how many can claim to be the most sought after DJ in the world?

One—DJ Ruckus.

Well, at least according to GQ, which dubbed him “the most sought after DJ in the world” and it’s pretty easy to see why. DJ Ruckus plays more than 180 shows a year, is a resident DJ in nightclubs around the country including exclusive destinations in New York, Miami, Las Vegas, Atlantic City (at MIXX at Borgata) and Atlanta and has played private shows for celebrities including Adrian Brody, Christina Aguilera, Diddy, Magic Johnson and Steven Tyler.

He also provides the music at exclusive parties for corporate clients including Calvin Klein, PlayStation, Prada and Virgin and fashion shows and film premiers around the world.

It all started when he received some turntables for his 14th birthday. In just a couple of years he was headlining at some of the biggest clubs in his native Miami and playing private parties for Diddy in Morocco.

New Craft Beers at Vintage Wine Boutique

BeerWe’ve all seen wine aficionados going through their routine as they sample their classic wines.

You know—the swirl in the glass to check the color, the sniffing of the bouquet, the swishing of the wine in the mouth to pick up its accents and flavors.

It’s one of the great joys of wine selection and part of the education Vintage Wine Boutique at The Shoppes at The Water Club has always given would-be wine connoisseurs.

As for beer drinkers, well, that’s a little different right? The main taste element is whether it’s cold; it’s hard to see the color and sniff the bouquet from a can isn’t it?

Au contraire, mon amie.

At Vintage, we take beer as seriously as we take our classic selection of wines. And so we’re introducing a new line of craft beers guaranteed to turn any beer drinker into a connoisseur of the hops. These are beers so finely crafted, they stand up to scrutiny as well as any fine wine.
